Of course my project would not be complete without a model with dark skin. It was important for me to experiment with different ages, cultures and skin types to experiment with flattering light for each. Again not a professional model but you really get a sense of a strong women proud of who she is, especially given her choice of hair style.
I want to give a comparison, of an image at the beginning of the shoot and one as we progressed. It is amazing the difference it can make when you really work hard to make the model feel at ease.
